    This is one of those lessons you hopefully only learn once. I keep a 5k base stash of all my used primers but I don't reload/shoot a ton. I'm still occasionally finding some at smaller, local shops.

    The combination of Covid, new shooters and reloaderd and the approaching election have lead to a perfect storm of shortages. If Trump wins give it a year to begin to settle. If that other guy wins...

    It will depend on brand. Federal SR are pretty soft & work in stock glocks. How much you drop a powder charge depends on where your charge is & what kind of powder. To say 2gr is not true or well informed.

    Yeah, 2 grains might be outside the range of min and max for some cartridges and powders.
